How will the terrorist attacks affect science policy in the US? Should the US keep supporting the international space station? In this hour, we'll talk with the President's science advisor, John Marburger III. Plus, what a unique community of microbes, found 600 feet below Earth's surface, could tell us about life on Mars. And how to make a battery out of mud.
